Hanging File Folder Makeover

Hi everyone!  Spring is here and it actually feels like spring outside!  FINALLY.  Good gravy, I thought the winter would never end.

If one of you even thinks about telling me that more winter weather is headed my way, I'm going to smack my head against my desk until I lose consciousness.

Today, I'm going to show you how I took some hanging file folders and made them... not ugly.

Hanging file folders are ugly.  And the ones that aren't ugly are a million dollars.  You heard it here first.  So, I grabbed my stoopie (that's how I say stupid) green hanging file folders and some white cardstock:

I used a very technical method of updating these folders: I used double-sided tape.  I hope that wasn't too complicated for you.

I could have raided my stockpile of patterned papers, but I really wanted something plain and clean... white was just the go-to choice for me.

And then, because Martha Stewart doesn't have enough of my money, I bought some pretty file folders to match my not-so-ugly-anymore hanging file folders...

Aren't those cute?  I know, adorbs.

And then, I added my labels and stuffed 'em in their drawer.  They are so much prettier now!

In order to stay organized, we must make our organization tools look appealing.  That's the motto I'm using for today. :)

I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!

  1. What a great idea! Now if I can just go through all my files and cull out the stuff I don't actually need to keep. ACK, what a job! Loved your pretty folders. :-)

  2. Love this! I'm all for cute organization :)


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
